Arsenal Montreal 2020 William Street Montreal (Quebec) H3J 1R8 Canada
Ed Fornieles, Matt Goerzen, and Hannah Perry’s haptic, multimedia installation environments in “I feel we think bad”, demonstrate the notion that art depicting networked life readily explores how representational art can be abstract, and how abstract art can be representational.

Devised as a response to flooding, extreme weather, and our changing relationship with the natural world the Weather Station has, for two summers now, travelled around South West England gathering traces of its journey and of the actions of its residents. Review by Trevor H. Smith
MMK 3, Museum für Moderne Kunst, Domstraße 10 60311 Frankfurt am Main
A sense of uncertainty adds to the overall effect of Prouvost’s work. This is another world, or rather it is our world stained, oddly seductive and uncertain. Review by Laura Mansfield
Marian Goodman Gallery, 5-8 Lower John Street, London W1F 9DY
The title of Giuseppe Penone’s show at Marian Goodman – ‘Fui, Sarò, Non Sono, or I was, I will be, I am not’ – plays off the theme of growth and change. Sculptures and drawings, mainly of trees, are twisted, moulded and developed throughout the space, assuming a new identity. Review by Phoebe Cripps

Various locations, Bristol
Bristol Biennial 2016 presents thirteen new commissions on the theme of ‘In Other Worlds’. This otherness took many forms: human to non-human, present to future; from the city streets to the very air we breathe. A series of exhibitions, talks, events and satellite projects encourage encounters with, conversations on and explorations of an array of alchemically transformed locations across the city.

The Modern Institute, Aird’s Lane, Glasgow
For his second solo exhibition at The Modern Institute, Nicolas Party has transformed the Aird’s Lane space into an interior populated with temporary walls and murals meticulously rendered to resemble marble and malachite in the manner of trompe l’oeil. This scenery creates a faux-classical setting to present Party’s new body of pastels on canvas.
